Dear Parents

Thank you for visiting our website to find out more about Chiltern Primary School – where everyone is welcome and everyone is valued!

We have over 18% SEN, 20% EAL, 20 different languages spoken and over 12 faiths followed – yet we retain our family, village-school feel from when we were one-form-entry, many years ago. The education of the whole child is equally important to us as academic standards as we prepare our pupils for the next stages of their life.

I have been at Chiltern Primary for almost 20 years now and couldn’t imagine teaching anywhere else.  Whilst here, I have always been surrounded by enthusiastic pupils, dedicated staff and Governors and great parental support. Our pupils achieve well from their varied starting points and thrive on learning as much as they can – they are not scared of a challenge and relish the opportunity to showcase their talents at local and National levels – having recently won the Michael Rosen ‘Play’ poetry competition…hot on the heels of having a winning film shown in an IMAX cinema in London.  Past pupils have gone on to gain success as pilots, doctors, nurses and concert musicians…to name a few varied careers. Even 3 of our staff were previously pupils at our school!

The children, through their School Council and Eco Council voice, support many local, National and Global charities, regularly receiving the Parish award for the most money raised for selling poppies and always looking for the next good cause to boost.

These interests have been maintained even over the last 2 years with significant COVID interruption.

If you would like your child to join our engaging, safe and happy school, please book an appointment to come in and meet us, so you can see the wonderful learning our pupils experience each term. I look forward to meeting you and your child soon,

Kind regards,

Penny Howell


Head Teacher
